If you haven’t tried stovetop oats, this is totally a game changer. I used to ALWAYS make my oats using hot water and just waiting for it to cook. It wasn’t until I started adding egg whites (to amp up the protein) that I started using the stove to ensure the eggs were cooked thoroughly - and boy, am I glad I did.
The oatmeal comes out so fluffy, creamy and delicious when combined with the egg whites ad slow-cooked on a stove. (Plus, you seriously don’t even taste the eggs!) Add in a little bit of frozen berries & maple syrup, and you've got yourself one yummy bowl of protein oats.
